Hi. I went to school to learn to work on computers for two years so I might know something. Check the RAM. The memory that goes in the computer. I'm NOT talking about the hard drive, or flash memory. These are the long chips that plug into the motherboard (mainboard) inside. One of the things that happens when memory goes out is NOTHING like you're getting. If you can get ahold of a known good chip and replace the chip in the computer with the good one and the computer comes to life, that's the problem. Which computer is it.

My name is ArmyMason, I think I have an answer for you. You seem to have one of two issues, the most likely issue you are experiencing with your Acer is a bad Power Supply. The only fan you are hearing is the Power Supply fan and no beeps its the Power Supply. If its was the fan on the processor you heard it could mean the Processor is bad. If this is a brand new computer I would most likely put my money on it being the Power Supply. A relativity cheap fix.
